Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Artisan Pancetta & Tomato Pasta

Boil a kettle

Heat a large pot with a matching lid, with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the pancetta lardons

Cook for 4 min or until crispy and starting to brown

2 Artisan Pancetta & Tomato Pasta

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Dissolve the chicken stock cube[s] in 500ml [1L] boiled water

3 Artisan Pancetta & Tomato Pasta

Add the chopped garlic, dried oregano, chopped tomatoes, conchiglie and chicken stock to the pancetta with 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar

4 Artisan Pancetta & Tomato Pasta

Cover with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook for 7 min

Tip: stir occasionally to ensure that the pasta has not stuck to the base of the pot

5 Artisan Pancetta & Tomato Pasta

Meanwhile, chop the chives finely

6 Artisan Pancetta & Tomato Pasta

After 7 min, remove the lid from the pasta

Stir continuously for 4-5 min or until a sauce has formed and the pasta is cooked, adding more water if it looks too dry

Tip: stirring the sauce releases the starch from the pasta making it naturally creamier!

7 Artisan Pancetta & Tomato Pasta

Once the pasta is cooked, remove the pot from the heat and stir in half of the chopped chives and the soft cheese
